Reza Aslan and Profanity

In the wake of the London terror attack, Reza Aslan tweeted his opinion that President Trump is a “piece of s**t” for saying it was a terror attack.

When he was ridiculed and criticized for using profanity to condemn Trump for being RIGHT about the attack, he apologized for the profanity, saying this “was not like him.”

Yeah, no.  Profanity and derogatory statements are absolutely and totally like him, as these specimens of his past tweets demonstrate:

  • May 29, 2017 tweet responding to a tweeter who said Putin’s visit had “weakened core elements of post-WW2 order”: “But on the plus side he didn’t s**t himself in public.”
  • May 26, 2017 tweet commenting on Trump’s tweet congratulating Gianforte for his win in Montana: “And Jesus said, ‘if someone tries to ask you a question, beat the s**t out of them.'”
  • May 23, 2017 tweet responding to Sean Hannity’s tweet that he had been trying to find the truth about Seth Rich “as the Mom Dad bro asked”:  “This piece of s**t.”
  • May 14, 2017 tweet responding to Paul Ryan’s tweet celebrating moms on Mother’s Day: “Except of course Syrian moms fleeing war, famine, and genocide with their starving children. F**k those moms.”
  • Feb 16, 2017 tweet responding to Jake Tapper’s tweet quoting a “friend of Harward’s” who he said had told him that Trump’s offer of an NSA job was a “s**t sandwich”:  “Right now a ‘s**t sandwich’ is the best any of us can hope for from the #FakePresident.”
  • May 9, 2017 tweet about hypocritcal Democrats criticizing him for firing Comey, when they had been demanding he do so:  “Oh the joy when this lying conniving scumbag narcissistic sociopath piece of s**t fake president finally gets what’s coming to him.”
  • Oct 21, 2016 tweet responding to Dinesh D’Souza’s criticism of Barack Obama:  “Hey Dinesh. I’ll say this as politely as I can: Go f**k yourself, you adulterous piece of s**t felon.”
  • July 30, 2016 tweet responding to Donald Trump’s remark about what Khizr Khan’s wife would say:  “She’d probably tell you to go f**k yourself.”

Who is this potty-mouthed hypocrite when he’s not on Twitter:
